Anyone ever have problems from the Rage 3 blade broadheads?
Look out, let the fun begin!!
Get you a set of Grim Reapers Broadheads and you won't have to worry about any problems.
I never had any problems with them.
Thanks guys.. Just thought about trying some new broadheads. I have a buddy that shot some and said there was a difference in penetration from his old broadhead..I was just wondering if the Rage is worth all the hype.
I hate the dang o rings. they always opened in the quiver and tangled up with the other heads.
Muzzy mx3's for me.
I prefer the 2 blade Rage compared to the 3 blade. The 3 blade to me seems to have more oportunity to have the blades "catch/lock" on one another during deployment. This issue does not seem like it could happen on the 2 blade since the blades never cross the paths of one of the other blades like they do on the 3 blade. Just my $.02 having shot and used both. That being said, I will be shooting Slick Tricks this season.
Depends on what he is comparing them to. Any mechanical is going to have less penetration than a fixed blade.
I totally agree with this post. I have never shot the 3 blade but shot the 2blade rage heads for several years and never had a problem at all. This year I have dropped my draw weight from 70lbs to 55 so I am going back to a smaller cut on contact head because of my light draw weight and short draw length. I feel like rage heads work better with higher draw weight bows, because of the large cutting area, and need that to get a pass through. Every deer I shot with a 2 blade rage head was dead with in 40 yards and they leave a heck of a blood trail.
Never shot them, but from much of what I read and have seen, they just don't penetrate as good. If I were trying one, I would think I would stick with the 2 blades. I use mechanicals and have never had a problem, almost always pass throughs, but I have seen many videos where the Rage doesn't penetrate nearly as good as I would like. But dear lord do they leave a blood trail.
Good luck with the Slick Tricks?
They donated a few packs to our NASP benefit shoot for this weekend. Since they arrived, I have been curious about them.
I used those before rage and will go back to them this year or g5 strikers. The slicks are a great head imo they don't usually plane out are tough(they just made the blade even thicker this year) and hold up very well to contact with bone. A very good all around head that has never given me a moments problem just wanted to try out rage heads. I wish they hadn't raised their price from the old days though, You used to be able to get 3 complete heads for $25 now it's more like $35 but still well worth it.
I can't compare a fixed to a mechanical because I've never had a Grimreaper not do a complete pass through. They are bad news and the only broadhead I use. One head is good for two deer. I shot 2 two years ago with the same head and it went through like slicing butter both times.
Lancaster Archery has Magnums for $27.00.
FYI Went to Slick Tricks this year for the first time.(converted from Rage) Out of the box hit exactly where my field tips hit at 60 yards.
[IMO just use a fixed blade because then you will know 100% of the time when that arrow leaves your string that it is open and ready to do damage. Thats why im a muzzy man cause theyre sharp, duriable, cheap and you cant leave out the cool muzzy decal they come with
